I have questioned my color decision too. Especially after seeing the Hydro Blue from a post yesterday and now this one. I was back and forth on white or billet when I ordered.
I ordered Billet.

Beautiful! I ordered black and contemplated wrapping the bottom in a deep red. (Not a fan of the flame red.) But looking at these pics, I may just keep it black.

I also ordered black, but just for the purpose of having a "blank slate" for wrapping it. I started wrapping vehicles just to see if I could pull it off. I had a 2015 Ram 1500 that I wrapped in matte military green. I had put a Magna supercharger in to make a "poor man's" TRX right after the concept came out back in 2016. Only had about 500hp after the boost, but it was a TON of fun to drive, especially when a little rice burner pulled up at a light and wanted to try to be fast, and learned quickly that a charged V8 will always eat a NA 4 cylinder!
Then I decided to wrap my Polaris RZR to match, which was actually more of a pain in the a$$ than wrapping the entire truck.

In April of this year, I had hear rumors the TRX was going to be delayed until 2022 model year, so I ran out of patience and bought a 2019 Ram 2500 and wrapped that when it only had 67 miles on it.

I like the way the vinyl will protect the paint, so when it comes time to get rid of the vehicle, no matter how much brush you've driven through, tree branches have scraped your truck, etc., the paint underneath still looks brand new. With the Green truck, when the vinyl was newer (like up to a year and a halfish), it was really cool, because if I got scrapes from driving through brush or trees, all I had to do was leave it outside in the sun for a couple days and they would just fill themselves in. Hard to explain, but the heat of the sun basically made them disappear. Really weird. However, once it was like 3 years old, they didn't completely dissolve anymore. They'd be less noticeable, but not completely gone like when I first wrapped it.

Now with the TRX, I ordered it black and I'm going to go with 3M's Matte Dark Grey. I'll post some pics when I get it done.

Here are some pics of the other trucks:

On the tailgate I did a distressed flag underlay that turned out pretty cool. Pics aren't the greatest, but looks cool in person.

Those look awesome! Did you personally wrap them and if so how much was the time and cost? Thanks

Thanks for the compliments. I did them myself. My half ton I had for about 3 years before I wrapped it and was getting antsy for something different, but I wanted to wait for the TRX, so I thought, "I bet I could do a wrap." Watched a bunch of Youtube vids, mostly about how people screwed up so I knew what to avoid, then went to it. The panels aren't bad, but the absolute worst part to wrap was the front bumper. The green one I tried like 5 times before I finally got it "Acceptable." The Bushwacker flares on that one with the bolts were also a huge pain. It took a FULL day just to do the 4 flares.
The 2500 was a completely different job. When I did the green one, I took a week off of work, that that was my full focus. With the 2500, I was working about 40-60 hours a week, so it was more of a "work on it while you can" type of deal. I also had a bunch of stuff I did to the truck at the same time, so I was kind of bouncing back and forth. 5" lift, Built-in radar detector/laser jammer, train horn, automatic tonneau cover. I also had a week vacation in there, so it ended up taking nearly a month for everything to be finished. It's definitely an exercise in patience, but well worth it in the end. The tailgate was actually to try to cover up a HUGE mistake I made. The "Laramie" badge on the tailgate is aluminum, so it is very rigid. I was slowly prying it off with a plastic tool while heating it up with a heat gun. When I finally got it completely off and cleaned off all of the molding tape shrapnel, I noticed I had put like 5 or 6 little dents in the brand new tailgate. At that point, I either had to take it to the body shop to get it fixed or do something to break up the flat surface of the tailgate. I went with the latter, as I wanted my truck back on the road ASAP. It turned out really cool, but those little dents are still the first thing I see when I look at it! Going to eventually take it to a PDR shop and see what they can do.
